I don't believe I have seen a better condition composition and cloth antique doll body. The composition arms and legs are perfect with no lifting or crazing and the cloth torso and upper legs are squeaky clean and no stitching is loose. The elbows, tops of hands, knees and goes have the original rosy highlighting and there are no smudges, scratches or scrapes on the composition. The back of the body is stamped "Genuine Madame Hendren Doll." The crier box can be seen through the fabric but for some reason it is not working. There are remains of a celluloid shoulder plate still glued to the front and back so I am assuming this was a celluloid shoulder head doll. It can, however, be used for composition and bisque shoulder heads. The body measures 12-1/2 inches tall, and has a 3-1/2 inches across the top between the shoulders. It is 2-1/4 inches thick where the shoulder plate will fit over the body. If you have a perfect head that will fit, you will have a mint antique doll!
